Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Monday, July 10th 2017.
The MLB All Star Futures Game was yesterday and we live-blogged it here. My main goal today is to catch up the backlog of rookie profiles, then we will celebrate the All Star Break by beginning our mid-season organization reviews. There will also be an updated Top 100 prospect list sometime in July.
